Located on a private bay on the Triestine coast, Portopiccolo is a welcoming and exclusive base for exploring a unique territory. Dropping straight into the sea, the white calcium rocks of the Falesian cliffs exist in a protected natural environment. The fairy-tale architecture of the Castle of Miramare, surrounded by a rich park of botanical species and facing out onto the Marine Preserve protected by the WWF. And then, the Carso plateau with its colours that change from the green of Mediterranean scrub in summer to the intense reds of autumn. Located just a few miles from the Collio hill region, a series of pleasant hills accented by small villages and specialised vineyards where one can taste some of the best wines in the world. This place is very special. Not even that is protected by the rocks from wind ( you get this annoying Bora here few days per year) but it´s also boasts luxury apartments and villas set like a roman amphitheatre dotted aroud the rocks. There is a private beach club, panoramatic pool for residents, numerous beautiful boutiques e.g. Cruciani and Diptyque, cafes, restaurants and bars, cameras everywhere, undergroud parking and numerous little cute squares and streets. All super clean and new. On top of all this ( including a marina of course) you have Falisia, The Luxury Collection Hotel with gurmet restaurant called Cliff. Honestly I had the most amazing food here. The tasting menu was a journey and completely unexpected. Hotel also have cozy spa and very pleasant bright and spacious rooms. I must say that I (and its not often the case) felt home, welcomed and pampered. The staff was great, but so the managment was. I would gladly return here and I hope I will.
